Doug, Brad, list. I think figured it out. I double checked the slope. Yup, 28
inches from house to ditch. But when I got to thinking about it something
dawned on me. I see the pipe as it comes out of the house and goes down next

and then out to the ditch which means it would have to go UPHILL. Duh, why did
I think of that before.
